Windows shortcut causes problems at startup #436

Open
opened 5 months ago by UnexampledSalt · 1 comments

Fresh install on Windows 10.

Opening with start menu shortcut would cause intermittent connection issues, mostly resuting in total connection failure. Starting from terminal, or by using the executable directly worked flawlessly.

Found that the shortcut was malformed. The "Start In" option was set to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cwtch\cwtch.exe"

When this was changed to simply "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cwtch" using the shortcut works as intended for a flawless startup.

Thanks for the report!

I believe this was fixed in the 1.7 release - @dan?
